Vistara Receives CAT III-B Certification for Low Visibility Operations

Full service carrier Vistara has received the Category III (CAT III-B) certification from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for low visibility flight operations.

The airline’s impeccable operational excellence has made it the envy of other airlines in India, with its zero flight cancellation rate and consistently high On-Time Performance (OTP) records.

‘The certification could not have been more well-timed for Vistara to maintain its stellar performance during the upcoming fog season. Permitting its CAT IIIB compliant fleet and crew to safely take-off and touch-down with a Runway Visibility Range (RVR) of as low as 75 meters,” the airline said.

Vistara said the certification will enable it to safely operate under low visibility conditions due to fog or any other poor weather conditions, which is anticipated in north east and northern parts of the country, typically during year-end and the beginning of the year.

“Although a bad weather condition is beyond our control, we always endeavor to minimise the inconvenience faced by our customers during a flight delay or diversion arising from inclement weather. We value the trust and faith our customers repose in us when they make Vistara their choice of travel,” Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara said.
